The winery staff are knowledgeable and lead our small group thru a fun tasting of a number of red, white and dessert wines. We were impressed. The tasting room was very clean, well organized and there was plenty of windows to take in the beautiful mountain & vineyard views.

This is a small vineyard in absolutely amazing setting, good wine and friendly service. We were sitting outside with glass of merlot and Triskele and felt like we were only people in the area.

First off, they have a super cool LOVE sign out front made of wine bottles. Great picture opportunity. But on to the wine...we did a full tasting and wine was excellent! The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the wine. They also have games for their customers/kids to play (cornhole, croquet, bad mitten). Also picked up a locally made cheese... More

We've visited a lot of vineyards in Northern VA and this one stands out for sure. The scenery is beautiful, as is the building. We almost felt like we were back in New England. There is lots of great outdoor seating if the weather is right. The wines were some of the best I've had. Very unique compared to the... More

I must recommend this place. It is a lovely spot in its own Hollow, with views of the Shenandoah National Park. the wine was very drinkable, and the music (on Saturday afternoons through the summer and fall, just right. My recommendation is to walk part of the White Cliffs trail into the park in the morning. Finish the afternoon in... More

The wine is delicious and I love that the place is dog friendly. When my husband and I most recently went, our dogs were pretty poorly behaved and were barking quite a bit. Our taster was so sweet and amazing and brought out a bowl of water and some treats for our pups to help calm them some so we... More

We enjoyed our tasting and the staff was very nice. We bought 3 bottles of red wine. If you buy two bottles, one of the tastings is free (normally $8). We brought a picnic lunch to eat outside on their patio.

Drawn to Ducard by the Tesla destination charging, their superb hospitality and excellent wine will have us going back -- often! We've explored a few other local wineries, and typically enjoy them... Ducard, however, was exceptional. We had a group tasting, along with a tour of their small production facility. Found out they also offer dinner in the wine making... More
